Joshua was born in Northern California. He graduated from UCLA in 2005 and works in high-tech sales. As a child he loved snow-boarding, mischief and girls. He has a knack for random bar games and getting a great deal. He met Laura on the first day of college, but waited 7 years to call her.
Laura was also born in Northern California. She loves her hometown neighborhood, the Sacramento Kings and mint chip ice cream. After attending UCLA, she enjoyed San Francisco’s treats for 4 years before trading them in for Joshua.
In 2010, Joshua and Laura moved to Jacksonville Beach, FL. After 20 months of humidity, biscuits and gravy and plenty of camo, they decided to leave their jobs and travel the world. P.S. They have no idea where they are going.
Excuse me, what’s the deal with the redshirts?
I don’t think the embarrassment will ever wear off when we ask people to take our photo while wearing them. But, they are sentimental. The former owners were my grandparents. They were handed down to us (with tags attached?!) when my grandparents passed away as a reminder to live like we are always on vacation.
So, why write a blog?!
Twenty months of travel is a long time, and I don’t want to forget a thing (I am my mother’s daughter). But, this isn’t a travel blog. It’s a blog about travel. It’s the story of what we did, but not what you should do, the recollection of what we loved (or didn’t love) which won’t be the same for anyone else. It’s mainly the tale of what went wrong because that’s what turns travel into adventure. So actually, this is an adventure blog (an adventure of a lifetime, in fact) where you can follow two people who decided to see, who opted for do and who whole heartily believe in GO.
Email if you have travel recommendations, questions, worries. We love tips and advice and we have learned a few lessons on the road we’d be happy to share.
